Hi Nguyen Thai Ly... I am assuming you are sharing stones from your own collection & we are seeing substantial variety. Do you create any wood seats, yourself? I liked a previous seat for its rich allusions, but the style choice was VERY different.

This stone wonderfully captures the contour of the classic Shiwan mud-man figurine, and I like your references to that iconic image. The wood seat fits beautifully while allowing focus on the stone. The seating's dark color & abstract contour allows the stone much greater presence than a more explicit seat carving. Adding a mud man to the display assures that you and the viewer are thinking alike... and it is an amusing, lighthearted sharing.

Similar images are seen in shangshi exhibits-- Yvonne has shown one in the recent European Suiseki Association exhibit with a longevity figure holding a staff. The addition of a hat is slightly too explicit for a Japanese-style suiseki exhibit (and the more relevant fishing figure would be the specific folk god Ebisu), though stones with carved hats (especially racoon dog stones with a wide-brimmed carved hat hanging down its back) are sold in Japan much as carved stones looking natural are sold as decorative objects. Those Japanese stones are probably carved to assure fidelity of the image for the viewer, whereas yours strikes the viewer as natural. For me, that is a huge leap in expressiveness, choice & taste. Your stone is an evocative stone for viewing.

Among the narrow range of additions on a stone in Japanese-style suiseki exhibits, I recall none accepted for human figure stones. Hats, staffs & necklaces/rosaries add explicitness to shangshi.

Perfect!

It's perfect to a T. The only drawback is it limits the viewer's imagination.

I personally just prefer to see it as chaos.

Lý làm tuyệt lắm. Nhưng cá nhân mình chỉ muốn xem hòn đá như một biểu tượng cho sự hỗn độn, hay uyên nguyên.
